|Permaculture: A Designers' Manual - Bill Mollison|
Permaculture (permanent agriculture) is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of langscape and people providing their food, energy, shelter, and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. Without permanent agriculture there is no possibility of a stable social order.

|The Theology of Martin Luther King, Jr. - James H. Cone|
Martin Luther King, Jr. was a theologian and preacher of the black church. No one can understand his theology apart from the history of the black religious experience. This is not to deny other important influences in his thinking; but because most of King's interpreters ignored or belittled the place of the black church in his intellectual development, it is necessary to establish the claim that the faith of the black church was the most important source of Kin's theology?

|SDS/WUO: Students for a Democratic Society & the Weather Underground Organization - David Gilbert|
Two important political organisations in the history of the amaerican white left. It points out their contributions while not glossing over their mistakes and weaknesses. SDS grew to become a large white radical student movement against the Vietnam war in the sixties, while the WUO, a splinter group of SDS, tried to move "from protest to resistance" by carrying out clandestine actions against U.S. imperialism from 1970-1976.

One of those who did not forsake the plough but took up arms in defence of the Russian Revolution, fighting against interventionists, Tsarists, Whites, and Reds, and who linked up with the Makhnovists, survived to tell his story. It is a fascinating account of revolutionary Russia as it really was. This is the second in a series on the history of the now defunct USSR. It will be followed by account of two powerful lies that cost thousands of lives, and others yet to come may include secrets of a...

The history of human thought recalls the swinging of a pendulum which takes centuries to swing. After a long period of slumber comes a moment of awakening. Then thought frees herself from the chains with which those interested-rulers, lawyers, clerics-have carefully enwound her.

|Ozymandias Sabotage Handbook - Cafe Underground in Britain|
This guide is not really about 'noble' sabotage-for example people clamping themselves to diggers on road projects. It's about taking action against the everyday destruction of the environment-it's about afforestation (of open areas), deforestation (of natural woodlands), polluting industries, and the ceaseless growth of urbanised areas while inner cities are left derelict. Specifically, it's about sabotaging machinery, and getting away with it.

This came as a result of him and other comrades attempting to enact Peoples Justice against a major drug dealer who allowed one of his drug workers to sexually abuse an 11 year old girl as "payment" for the little girls' mother's drug habit.

The hypocrisy of these celebrations seem obvious in light of the fact that modern parliamentary and congressional democracy is, in many ways, a violation of the principles of direct democracy that were established in ancient Athens and that are examined here in C.L...
